Simply put a morbidly obese person is a person who weighs about 45kgs (100lbs) more than his or her ideal weight. In addition, this person would have a BMI of around 40. We won’t go much into this definition but here is an article that explains this condition in more details.
Talking of bad knees, what does it mean? Well, this is a condition whereby you’ll experience pain during physical movements. In medical terms, this condition is also referred to as patellofemoral pain syndrome.
Bad knees can be caused by a number of factors which include:
If you’re morbidly obese, cardio workouts would be good for you. However, you should avoid high impact routines such as the two examples mentioned above. You should consider workouts that will be easy on your joints (e.g knees and ankles)
And the good exercise options include cycling, swimming, step ups, calf raises, and using an elliptical machine.
With a bad knee(s) these workouts will be good for you as well. In addition, you should rest sufficiently, always warm up before your workout routine, wrap your knee or wear a knee sleeve/brace during your workout.
